Woodland California Highway Patrol officers are pulling their patrol cars up to schools throughout Yolo County this week to collected donations for “CHiPs for Kids,” a toy drive that provides gifts to local children who are hospitalized or disadvantaged.

The “Stuff the Patrol Car” event took place Wednesday at Birch Lane and Willett elementary schools in Davis, where students attempted to place as many unwrapped toys as possible into a CHP vehicle. Last year, Woodland CHP officers collected more than 1,800 toys just in time for the holidays.

“The ‘Stuff the Patrol Car’ event is a great way for schools to give back to the community and provides a valuable lesson to the kids, both on the giving and receiving side,” said Officer Bryan Konvalin, spokeswoman for the Woodland CHP office.

Additional toy collections were planned for Thursday at Esparto Elementary School and Friday at both Winters Elementary School and Westmore Oaks Elementary School in West Sacramento. Woodland’s Maxwell Elementary School held a “Stuff the Patrol Car” event on Monday.

Several other Yolo County schools hosted collection barrels for the toy drive on their campuses, Konvalin said.

For more information about the “CHiPs for Kids” program, call the Woodland CHP office at 530-662-4685.
